"The raw truth about sexless marriages"
Last week on Oprah, Dr. Meana talked about sexual relations and sexless marriages, these are sad facts but true ones.There seem to be a lot of sexless marriages in our society today.I think the lack of sex in marriages are caused by health problems that crop up later into the marriage because of health problems that exist.
Many married couples are going without the pleasure of sexual relations, because of not being able to function in the bedroom.The sexual desire can still be there, but if you have medical problems, not being able to function in that area of your life can be disappointing for you and your spouse.Age is also a big factor in sexless marriages, as we get older the man lose their virility and some women lose their desire to perform in the bedroom.
The lack of sex in a marriages isn't because the couples don't desire it, but because of medical problems or medication side effects.When we're in sexless marriages, the only thing going in the bedroom is restful and peaceful sleep.There's no one out there that wants to admit to having a sexless marriage, because it's a big embarrassment. lllnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and use of medication can cause erectile dysfunction in a man.There are gracious men out there that take a chance on Viagara, Cialis and other medication to help them perform in the bedroom.
We are finding out that all those medication to help the man perform has many terrible side effects that's not safe for the man.Some of these harsh side effects are, blindness, hearing lost and an erection that last for hours at a time.An erection lasting hours could be a plus for the wife, but it could be terribly uncomfortable for the husband with the problem.In my opinion a penile implant would be better for the man and even safer than all than medication on the market today, with all the side effects.
So, don't be quick to judge married couples for not having sexual fun in the bedroom, if they're on medication that keeps them from functioning in bedroom. When we have these kinds of interruptions in our sexual lives, we have to find other things to try and keep the spice and intimacy in to the relationship.You don't stop touching or holding each other, you can always find ways to pleasure each other. Sex is not the most important thing in the relationship, it's important but you have got to have something else; to hold the the marriage together when the glitter and expectancy wear off.
If you're only in a marriage just for sex, you're in for a rude awakening, because it's not all about sex; it's about loving and caring for the one you're with. It's good to know that there is a lot of other couples going through the same lack of sex in their marriages because of medical and health problems.
